Just eyeballing Arkansas state, about half the state will see a total eclipse of the Sun on April 8, 2024! Looking just at De Queen and Mount Ida, as well as Batesville and Pocahontas, these towns will experience over four minutes of darkness! That is nearly twice as long as the total eclipse back in 2017!

The next total eclipse of the Sun for Arkansas will be on August 12, 2045. Notice how the path of totality runs from the northwest to the southeast through the state’s middle which is opposite of what will occur in 2024. Interesting!
